Stitch Fix #2

Posted by Irish in Misc2 Comments

I recently received my second box from Stitch Fix and was excited to see what this batch had in store for me as I did enjoy the experience with my first box.  For those new to Stitch Fix its a subscription service that costs $20 for a box of clothes picked out for you by a stylist. You can chose to have a box shipped to you on a regular basis or on your own schedule. I plan on getting a box once every couple of months. The $20 fee can then be applied to an item you purchase from the box and if you buy everything you get a discount on all items.

I was immediately drawn to the first item in the box as I love the color teal. Its bright and summery and just a lot of fun to wear.

I pulled out the shirt first which was by Market and Spruce and valued at $68. I liked the back of the shirt as well which had a nice crochet detail without being see through and tabbed sleeves.

With this one I loved the color and liked how it fit, for the most part, but felt that the v-neck was cut a bit awkwardly. Its a shirt that I wouldn’t feel comfortable in without wearing something underneath it which would then make the whole thing a bit ill fitting. So I decided to put this on into the Discard pile.

Next up were a pair of Jake Slim ankle length jeans from Just Black which value at $88. Overall I liked the fit and the dark color of the jean and I also appreciated that they weren’t a skinny jean but they were definitely not an ankle fit on me!

At 5’4″ I am not short but these jeans certainly made me feel that way. Even with a heel these jeans would be far too long and would require me spending more money in order to get them hemmed. If they were cheaper than $88 then I might consider them but at this time I decided to send them back.

Next up was a Kaiya stripped belted dress from Tart that values for $94. I knew immediately that the belt wouldn’t work as it was brown and the dress accents were black and pink. The belt that was shipped was also a small and so didn’t fit. The dress itself was made out of a spandexy material that I typically like but the overall effect of this one made me feel fat and frumpy. I liked the colors but this one just wasn’t for me.

Following the dress I tried on a gray Cossette crochet detail knit shit from Ezra which retails for $48 and while I liked the color and how soft it was I felt that the material was a bit too see through for my tastes. It was also a little snug around my middle which once I start exercising more will go away and make this one fit better. So I debated on holding on to it until then but in the end I decided to send it back as I don’t think the see through aspect of the material will ever sit well with me.

Finally there was a Abrianna longsleeve knit cardigan from 41Hawthorn which retails at $48. I liked the navy blue of the cardigan and the length of it but like the cardigan sent in my first fix there is no way to tie or button it closed. Therefore it just sort of hangs limply on my frame. I decided to send this one back as well.

In the end, I had fun trying on all the clothes but elected to not keep anything from this fix. I liked the styling options a bit better than my first box but for reasons mentioned above didn’t fall in love with any of the pieces. I am still a fan of this service though and have already scheduled my next fix. If you would like to try Stitch Fix yourself please consider using my referral link!

      I’m hopeful for the next box too. This one was definitely more my style but nothing wow worthy enough to keep.
